Don't know if it's just me but the top three sponsored listings on Yahoo.com are NOT showing in FF1.0 - they do work in IE though.

I use WXP

The sponsored listings do appear very briefly as the page is loading, but then they disappear. It's probably a design error in FF as the search result description text goes over the right hand ads too.

WXPSP2? Maybe you are the "beneficiary" of the new XP firewall setup ... after all, how can XP trust FF when compared to IE? :)

I am seeing the sponsored listings fine on FF. Can someone sticky me their OS/ Browser version etc so we can try to replicate this.
Thanks,
Tim

This could be caused by certain firefox extensions you may have installed.

Agreed, probably some extension.

I'ved used every FF made since Firebird 0.3 and never had the problem with Yahoo ads not showing up. I am now using 1.01 as well and still they are showing up.

I have also used FF on both 98 and XP and they show up on both...
